Diablo III: Beta Testing, Shrine Mechanics, Cinematics
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

In recent posts on the Diablo III forums community manager Bashiok revealed new information about the upcoming action RPG. This time the discussion covered a variety of topics including beta testing, experience sharing, Shrine mechanics, and cinematics.

Are Diablo III cinematics still classic kind of narrative-story-telling?

Those who visited for the recent press tour saw the first minute or so of the intro cinematic, which is done in a stylized Ďsketchí look. The idea being itís Cain relating his prophecy via his journal, so itís sort of his journal come alive, if you will. Itís also a lot cooler than it may sound (and on that note the voice/music/sfx were temp in the version we showed).

The 10 intro class cinematics (one for each class and gender) take the same style, but beyond that everything is high detail, high realism, holy-crap cinematics weíve all come to love. And thereís a lot of it. And they are so bad ass. Youíll be happy.

They only saw the first minute or so of the entire intro cinematic which was the stylized bit with Cain reciting some of his journal. You start up the game, see the intro for the first time, log in, create a character, see the character intro, then start playing. Itís a logical flow.
